Friday update

Happy Friday everyone,

Well, we have reached the end of Spring term 1 and it has been one filled with lots of ups and downs for everyone. but at the end of the 6 weeks we can say that the children have made us proud and we have delighted in all they have achieved.

Thank you to all the parents who have battled through the home schooling regime, learning alongside their children in many instances whilst juggling their own jobs or demands and thank you to all the critical worker parents who have had to continue to put themselves on the front line. I believe we are stronger as a community because of these difficult times, even though at times we may feel frustrated or exhausted we are still able to pull together for the sake of our children.

Hopefully soon we will get back to some sort of normal and the children will be back in school ready to build on the new skills and resilience they have learnt. We have no further information with regards to school opening fully but will keep you informed as soon as we do.

I have received several messages this week from parents thanking staff for the work they are doing and I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all the staff as they have universally shown resilience, dedication and flexibility; juggled their own lives and anxieties and continued to deliver learning and support to inspire and nurture the children.


I hope you are all able to have some rest over half term and enjoy your family units.

Please continue to keep safe and we will see you all either virtually or in person from Tuesday 23rd February.
